    one if my tie rods was wasted so I had to replace it and now I have massive toe. If you don't adjust the tie rods you won't need it.

      Wrong! Alignment should be checked after any suspension ride height modification

        If it's so far out, why didn't you at least match the measurement of the other side to get close?

        This. It's unlikely there will be an issue seeing as we can't adjust anything but toe but I'd have a hard time not at least throwing some string and a tape measure at the car to make sure things are square.

          I got it as close as I could but it is noticeable. I was exaggerating but that doesn't travel over teh internets.

                You're fuel injector wiring all good? You might need to splice in extra length with speakerwire.

                    it feels good to have a smooth running car. didnt think o2 sensor and fuel pump would make THAT big of a difference, but i was wrong. knew there would be a small improvement, but now i have a rock solid idle, and no cut out at high rpm! woohoo! now to get my injectors rebuilt, and new cap, rotor, FPR, fuel lines, and other ignition related parts.

                    simon, get an allignment. itll give you peace of mind, even if there was no effect on toe. do it for yourself

                      Toes. You've fucked your cars up during simple projects so many times I'm beginning to think you're making shit up just to piss everyone off. If these things are really happening please consider the following:

                      A. Refrain from starting any future projects on your car during which you perform any of the work.

                      B. Start a project thread for your e34 and confine posts regarding subsequent mayhem to said thread.

                        Or you'll get those type of responses. If this thread was a TV show it'd be breaking bad and you'd be skylar.

                              Your shop floors are big and smooth enough for me to do a Jack test without driving off the Jack. Haha.
